Some 50-odd kilometres from the explosive growth of Downtown Toronto's skyline, the city of Burlington is showing early signs of its own nascent urbanization, boasting a quickly developing skyline in its own right. Overlooking the city's progressively more vibrant waterfront, Adi Development Group's Nautique Lakefront Residences is set to bring 24 storeys of new urban density to Downtown Burlington.

The RAW Design project—currently in pre-development—is located on a corner lot at the intersection of Lakeshore Road East and Martha Street, a short walk away from both the Burlington waterfront and its walkable Downtown shopping area. Bringing 170 one and two-bedroom units of new residential density to the growing city, Nautique evidences the relatively new-found preponderance of vertical living across many Ontario municipalities previously dominated by detached single homes (and, at times, the urban sprawl that accompanies their construction).

Rising from a smooth, distinctively patterned podium (seen above), the tower boasts large, wrap-around balconies, and a window-wall configuration that invites in natural light while offering panoramic views of the lake to the south. The development will also feature landscaping by Hamilton-based Adesso Design Inc., and interior design by Cecconi Simone.

In terms of amenities, the building is set to feature a 24-hour concierge as well a gym, party room, and roof deck. An outdoor swimming pool (seen above) will provide warm-weather recreation while minimizing maintenance, costs, while outdoor and indoor dining rooms and bars will facilitate a range of social activities throughout the year. Amenities also include a yoga studio, a library and show kitchen, a whirlpool, as well as an indoor fireplace lounge.
